How to recover from allergies and rashes?

While we are thankful that we could avoid many days of summer in the desert, we had to arrive in Abu Dhabi on 20180825. It was heartbreaking for him and me to bid farewell to our Little Princess. Then, on 20180831, I started to develop skin rashes and had my last swim (after 6 late […]

What are questions to ask friends or colleagues who quit?

People who come to the world, our school(s), workplaces and cities will eventually leave, including ourselves. On 20180831, Little Prince and I would meet with a nice Belgian gentleman who is moving back to UK in early Nov 2018. He learned it as a surprise too as he intended to stay for another 1-2 years.

What things do we really need?

On 20180527, after arrival from a heartbreaking multi-city journey of bidding farewell forever to the maternal grandfather of Little Prince and Little Princess, we found that our home at the birth city of both Little Prince and Little Princess too dusty. Consequently, Little Prince suffered from itchy eyes and itchy noses. He also sneezed non-stop. […]
